|Abstract:||The World Health Organization and the International Agency for the Prevention of Blindness (IAPB) launched "VISION 2020: The Right to Sight" in 1999 as a global initiative to provide strategic guidelines to the Member States of the South-East Asia Region in scaling up efforts for the prevention of blindness and promoting advocacy for the right to sight worldwide. In order to scale up effective, sustainable and comprehensive eye health care through the expansion and intensification of "VISION 2020: the Right to Sight" in the Region for the period 2008-2015, a broad strategy framework needs to be adopted by the Member States and WHO in collaboration with partners. This report summarizes the deliberations and outcome of the Expert Group Meeting on VISION 2020 held at the WHO Regional Office for South-East Asia, New Delhi, India on 19-20 December 2007.|
